The local cruisers club put on its 10th annual Bay Fest while we were in La Paz. The festivities included a sailboat race, backwards dingy race, seminars, and raffles. The big event was a luau. Seemed odd that it wasn’t a Mexican Fiesta but the club is all gringo’s. They did have a roast pig (not sure where it was roasted?!), tasty rice and salad. We met up with friends from the sailing vessel Dragon’s Toy for happy hour and got to meet some fellow cruisers at our table. It is a good thing we liked our table mates since out of 17 tables we were the next to last to be called to the buffet table. The pig did not die in vain as I’m fairly certain we got the last pickings.
Somehow they were able to find luau dancers from Mexico that put on a nice show.
One of the main events for the party was the ugly Hawaiian shirt contest. They must have decided there were too many ugly shirts because they never got around to awarding that prize. Gary solicited input from his Facebook friends on which shirt to wear. Funny, the majority selected a vintage Key West shirt he gets the most compliments on and in fact got several that night. I think the shirt just doesn’t take a good photo.
Fun time was had by all
